Night Fright Problems

Recommended Posts

One of my budgies has a serious issue with night frights. All my birds are indoors. The dog sleeps in his cage at night in a different room. I don't have any cats. I've tried covering them, uncovering them, partially covering them, leaving a lamp on all night and leaving it dark. Still no luck. Any other suggestions as to what to try?

Would it be a new budgie or have you had it for awhile? Try giving him a little night light, birds do not have great night vision. It happened to one of mine once i just put a small night lamp on and after a few weeks he wasn't as afraid.

Could there be a possum in your roof stomping around and freaking them out? You've tried everything i would've suggested already. :blush: I had problems with night frights with my tiels, in the end i stopped it by only half covering the cage and giving them a night light.

I've had the budgie for about a month with no problems. I have a night light on for them but it doesn't help. No rodents running around and no possum. Funnily enough its the budgies setting of the cockatiels. The budgies start flapping about and set the cockatiels off.

I assume he is kept with the other 4 budgies you have too? Do you think it could be initiated from the other budgies in the cage?

Not casting aspersions here...dont get me wrong :P I had an issue in an outside cage once where those wood cockroaches used to hide in the seed spill trays under the cages and come out at night and freak the budgies out. :blush:

Nope no roaches either. My partner loathes them and she makes me kill them on site.

 

:ausb: hehe I gather you dislike roaches Elly? When I lived in New South Wales I had a large (About 2 inches) bush roach climb up my leg while I was in the shower.

 

My partner pointed out to me this morning that I have 7 birds in various locations around the house and they are probably setting each other of at different times. For example ,Casper my 8 week old cockatiel, was not used to perching as he was left to sleep on the bottom of a cage and fell off his perch last night. This set off my other cockatiel which in turn set off the budgies. Guess I'm stuck with them having night frights now :)
